Tasting Room


Substantial renovations over a two month period resulted in a brand-new, enlarged and modernised tasting room, which is perfect for hosting wine lovers and visitors.

“We decided at the end of the 2013 season, to invest in the upgrading of the tasting facility at the Estate as a sign of our commitment to the wine industry in general, wine tourism in our area and Avontuur’s wines specifically,” says Michael Taberer.

The new space, cleverly designed by Cape Town Interior Designer Clair Drier, holds true to the family values, the farm atmosphere and the intimate experience offered at Avontuur, but at the same time is much more open, fresh and spacious.

“Procuring enough seating for formal tastings and even just during season for our ever-growing number of visitors, has always been a problem,” Michael explains. “Although the outdoor seating is popular, the new venue admirably offers more flexible hosting opportunities ranging from formal seating at tables to comfy couches and arm chairs.”

The tasting room at Avontuur Estate is open daily, except on Good Friday and Christmas Day and can host small and large groups of up to 24. The hours are: Mon-Fri 08h30-17h00, Sat & Sun, 09h00-16h00. The tasting fee is R30 for 5 wines and various specialised tastings are offered.

The cosy tasting room at Avontuur welcomes visitors with fresh new look, but the decor is still in keeping with the family-owned winery atmosphere.  Seating is at the counter on bar stools,  at wooden tables or at the lounge seating inside the venue or during the summer months, outside on comfy furniture overlooking the paddocks and Helderberg.

Regular displays featuring new releases, specially priced wines or just to highlight a theme for eg Valentines Day, Mother’s Day etc keep the vibe exciting and ever-changing.  Our tasting room staff  are highly trained and know our wines inside and out.

Over weekends, we always ensure that we have at least one permanent staff member on duty who are usually assisted by one or more of our regular casual employees. The tasting room can be expanded to the terrace outside the glass doors and in summer these areas are definitely the most popular.

The tasting room is open daily except on Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Opening Times:  Monday-Friday 08h30-17h00.  Saturday & Sunday:  08h30-16h00.
